    Turning the Turn: New Materialism, Historical Materialism and Critical Theory.Susanne Lettow - 2017 - Thesis Eleven 140 (1):106-121.
    In many fields within the social sciences and the humanities, the ‘material turn’ has inspired fresh debates about human-nature relationships, ecology and the meaning of the social. However, the new materialism also poses some theoretical-political problems. These problems relate to the questions of ontology, epistemology and anthropology, as I argue in the first part of this article. In the second part, I argue that some theoretical-political problems that characterize the ‘new’ materialism have also been debated within the tradition of historical (...)

    Modes of Naturalization.Susanne Lettow - 2013 - Philosophy and Social Criticism 39 (2):117-131.
    Strategies of naturalization have pervaded throughout the course of modernity. In order to understand both the stability and the discontinuities of modes of naturalization that refer to the knowledge of the life sciences, it is worth going back to the time when biology and related forms of naturalizing sex and race first emerged. The article explores philosophical articulations of biological knowledge at the end of the 18th and the beginning of the 19th centuries. Immanuel Kant, Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph Schelling and (...)

    Bio-Technosciences in Philosophy: Challenges and Perspectives for Gender Studies in Philosophy.Susanne Lettow - 2010 - Diogenes 57 (1):127-137.
    Since the 1960s the bio/technosciences have occupied a central place in philosophical thinking. The paper sets out three theoretical configurations embodying major challenges for today’s gender studies in philosophy, since they raise an obstacle, each in its own way, to the discussion on implications of the bio/technosciences in the political field and the area of gender theory: firstly naturalism in the field of the philosophy of science; secondly the paradigm of applied ethics; and thirdly the discourse of philosophical anthropology that (...)

    Somatechnologies.Susanne Lettow - 2011 - Techné: Research in Philosophy and Technology 15 (2):110-117.
    Until now, the body has played only a minor role in the philosophy of technology. However, more elaborate reflections on the relation between technology and the body are needed because of the advent of somatechnologies – technologies intentionally geared toward modifying bodies and that use bodily substances as technological means. The article discusses some approaches within the philosophy of technology that prove to be fruitful in this context. The article argues thatsomatechnical modifications of bodies should be understood as elements of (...)

    The Cultural Embodiment of Biology: Naturphilosophie and Biological Knowledge Around 1800.Susanne Lettow - 2008 - Proceedings of the Xxii World Congress of Philosophy 44:53-61.
    Biology, established around 1800 as the “science of life,” has developed as not only a specific scientific discipline but it has also continually served as a kind of social knowledge. Biological knowledge supported the modern order of the sexes and the two-sex model that it was structured along, as well as modern racism and multiple forms of social inequality articulated by dichotomizing the normal and abnormal. However, the fledgling discipline of biology alone was not capable of developing the epistemological as (...)

    The Value of Justice.Susanne Lettow - 2006 - The Proceedings of the Twenty-First World Congress of Philosophy 2:183-187.
    "Justice" has been, since Plato and Aristotle, a concept of central importance in European philosophy. It is also a concept in everyday speech and in political discourse. As an inter-discursive concept, its value is not culturally limited, so that it seems particularly apt for use in discussions about achieving "globalization with a human face" (as one might say). For such processes of communication it is, however, necessary to reflect on the different uses made of this concept, which is claimed by (...)

    Re-Articulating Genealogy: Hegel on Kinship, Race and Reproduction.Susanne Lettow - 2021 - Hegel Bulletin 42 (2):256-276.
    In the decades around 1800, genealogical imaginaries, or the social, political, economic and cultural meanings of descent and kinship, underwent far-reaching change. Hegel was deeply concerned with these transformations in various respects and in different parts of his philosophy. By engaging with the issues of kinship and family, with the disputes over racial diversity as well as with the scientific debates about life, reproduction and the meaning of sexual difference, Hegel contributed to a philosophical re-articulation of genealogical relations, or to (...)

    Politicizing the Geological: Articulations of Earth and History in Modern Philosophical Race Discourse.Susanne Lettow - 2021 - Critical Philosophy of Race 9 (1):27-47.
    Against the backdrop of the current “geological turn,” the article sheds light on the ways in which the earth has been articulated through strategies of temporalization and territorialization in the context of modern philosophical race discourse. The author first reconstructs the constitution of a “geographic imagination” as it emerged in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. The first part focuses on the role of geography in Kant's theory of race, and Alexander von Humboldt's project of plant geography. In the (...)
